  1. Hi everyone! This is a Prognathodon tooth from Oulad Abdoun Basin, Morocco. I know that lots of rooted mosasaur tooth are composite or fake, so I am so happy to get such a nice rooted tooth from a reliable seller! The root has groove, which is a place for a new growing tooth, and has a great texture. I wanted to soak this and wash out some dusts from the root, but I saw a thread that says I should not soak Moroccan fossils.
  2. This would be my first Mammoth Molar I'm preparing again in 10 years. My first one was a 10lb Mammoth molar. This one is quite small of course since it's from a calf. It has been laying in right water for 1,5 months and at the moment I'm glueing the last 4 pieces since it's precision work with this small piece. I'm really glad I picked up on this one (Found in Maasvlakte, Netherlands). I found it in pretty poor condition you guys can see in the pictures. But I have never seen this molar, so I'm amazed anyways! I will show you guys the full picture when it is all done!

    Coral or Mastodon Molar?

    Hello! one of my coworkers brought in this fossil since they knew I was interested in that sorta thing and when I first saw it my mind went to coral but they said it was from California and was told it was a Mammoth molar, so I had to change my theory. While I know it is not a Mammoth molar it definitely has a tooth like structure, and in my opinion, could look like a heavily worn down Mastodon molar but I wanted someone who is an expert in this field/ knows more information than me to help with the identification. I didn't get to measure it exactly b

    Stigmaria ficoides

    From the album: Llewellyn Formation Plants of Pennsylvania

    Stigmaria ficoides Late Pennsylvanian Llewellyn Formation Schuylkill Co., PA
  5. I’ve been to an outcrop on a cut highway ramp three times over the past three days. First two times I gathered rocks and broke them up at home. This time I stuck around and searched. This outcrop has a prominent exposure of the Pine Creek limestone. In the shale immediately above that, I found my first fossilized plant/tree tap root. 13oz Estwing pick for scale. I was able to recover it. It’s about 12 pieces. The top portion has a quartz looking center. I plan on taking some photos and then trying to piece it back together with some paraloid.

    Pterosaur tooth with root

    Hello all, Here is a rooted pterosaur tooth from the kemkem. It's 6.5 cm long and is from the Kemkem. Does anyone know if an exact species can be determined for this tooth?
  9. Hi all, I came across this Ceratopsian tooth from the HC Fm. online and was wondering what you make of the 'wear facet' on the root? Did this occur naturally in the jaw while the tooth got disposed of? I have not seen this before so I am curious Thanks in advance!

    Stigmaria ficoides

    Stigmaria ficoides is a type designation for roots of scale trees (Lycopods). The main roots have scars, usually ovate, where the rootlets once attached. In this specimen you can clearly see not only the main root but rootlets coming off of the main root at right angles on both sides. The white highlights on this plate are iron oxide left from the original plant material. The site where this was found is part of the same formation as the famous St Clair locality, which is known for its white fern fossils.

    Petalodus sp. Tooth Root

    From the album: Chondrichthyan Teeth From The Pennsylvanian Period

    I believe this to be apart of a Petalodont root as I found the tooth in the previous image right next to this one
  12. Greetings everyone! I'm hoping someone might be able to help ID something that is not in the best of condition/shape. It's quite unusual from what I typically see/find here in Eastern NC - at first I was thinking the root of a whale tooth but it's not like any I've seen/found myself before. So, I'm hoping someone might be able to give direction if this is a tooth root or maybe even a small tusk root, possibly? There is only a tiny bit of enamel present on the tip where the tooth would be and the texture on the "inside" is somewhat similar looking to what I'd see in whale or maybe even a sliv

    Root system or conglomerate?

    Here's one of my "works". Again, found this when I was about 12 yrs old and painstakingly picked it clean with dental tools and thought it might be some sort of root system. Now, I wonder if its just a conglomerate? Thoughts on this as well appreciated! Though it looks like the "grey" roots are depressions, they are rounded, raised areas. I'll try taking some more outside. Maybe not even a fossil? Stay healthy! thanks! Bone

    Crinoid holdfast 3D

    Have you ever wondered what the holdfast root system looked like? I did. So I prepped one of my least costly duplicates to see the whole picture. Here are the before photos.
  15. @caldigger post on finding two pieces of the same tooth reminded me of the tooth I found in New Zealand many years ago. The site is closed now, so I don’t think there is a chance of finding the root. But is there anyone on here that could accept this challenge? I’ll pay of course! Tooth overlying picture of complete tooth of same size and position showing the missing root. The slightly trickier bit is on the back where the root/enamel transition is partially missing. Scale bar = 2 inches total. A few more images of the tooth;

    Tyrannosaur roots

    Hi I'm just wondering in some cases can the root of a tyrannosaur tooth stick out causing the tyrannosaur tooth to be bigger and if so will the tooth be fine and still be able to be used by the tyrannosaur @Troodon THANKS!!

    Mosasaur bone clump

    From the album: Marine reptiles and mammals

    A cool Moroccan mosasaur bone pile I acquired, sadly the matrix is so soft the piece broke in transit, but thankfully the splits missed all but 1 smaller bone. I'm considering just removing them from the matrix, and maybe mounting them in the same positions again, but I haven't decided yet. *more info to follow
  19. Hi everyone, Today I was in Weymouth (south of England) when I stumbled upon a popular fossil shop. The shop specializes in selling a variety of both fossil replicas and 'fossils'. While I was there I stumbled across a selection of Mosasaur teeth with the root kept inside a locked cabinet. I decided to purchase one of them for £10. So what I was wondering is if the tooth and root are real or not as I am still sceptical. Can anyone give any insight?

    Possible root fossil?

    Hello guys, I would like to ask you about one fossil that I found the last summer in Huelva (Spain), lower pliocene. In the area, I found bivalves, thalassinoides, gyrolithes and some crab rest. But the thing that most impressed me was the next. I asked in a Spain forum and someone told me that could be a root, but I can not find information about it on the Internet. The dark brown part is very sensitive to touch, melts to the touch. Thanks you, Daniel. Video:
  21. Hi all, This is an unusual looking find. Measures about 1 3/4 x 1 1/2 x 1 inch and found on the beach in Tampa Bay, Florida. It is hard as rock or shell, has striations running down and a twig sticking out of the middle. The bottom has tube worms, shell material and a barnacle. My educated guess is a fossilized plant root, like a mangrove (pneumatophores). Or a twig through a seashell like how the native Indians made tools that way by putting a hole in the shell and putting it through a branch and letting it grow in it tight. I have photographed several angles. What do you think it is?

    Found Middle TN Root fossil?

    Found this interesting piece digging near Natches Trace TN. Is this a root fossil?
  23. I found this in a creek bed near Patagonia, AZ. It has the long cylindrical hole, and also has a leaf imprint on the other side. There may be more in there, not sure. But I'm wondering especially about the cylinder. Is it something like a root? Or a clam burrow? Or something else? Thanks!

    Mosasaur tooth with replacement tooth

    From the album: Marine reptiles and mammals

    Mosasaur tooth with the replacement tooth still in place. I always wondered what the weird round/oval holes were on the side of mosasaur roots. Finally it all falls into place!
  25. Purchased this one from an auction site for fairly cheap. I'm sure actual tooth is real but is the root matrix real as well especially if coming from Morocco? Thanks!
